"It felt like I was speeding on the Autobahn toward hell, trapped inside a DeLorean with no brakes. And even if I could somehow stop, I'd still be screwed, because there's no way I'd ever be able to figure out how to open those insane, cocaine-designed doors."
The two-time Emmy Award-winning actress has written her first book, a surprisingly raw and triumphant memoir that is outrageous, moving, sweet, tragic, and heartbreakingly honest. Guts is a true triumph - a memoir that manages to be as frank and revealing as Augusten Burroughs, yet as hilarious and witty as David Sedaris.
With Guts, Johnston takes us on a journey so truthful and relatable, so remarkably fresh, it promises to stay with the listener for a long, long time.

Should win awards for best audiobook performance
I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and never bothered to review one, but this is one of the best performed audiobooks that I've come across. After listening to this, I would listen to any audiobook performed by Kristen Johnston and her
Kristen Johnston. But Nurse Wretched is a close second. Followed by Mr. James.
Anything in the hospital. Who knew peritonitis in the public ward of a London hospital could be so funny. I also like 'bloated has-been' and 'ice cubes.'
Yes, and I did.
Just that she is the kind of reader who really voices all the characters and I appreciate how much craft went into this audiobook. The fact that she wrote it too is pretty incredible.
Whiskey and cigarettes have never sounded so good.
